Casting announced for world premiere of ‘FARM HALL’ at Jermyn Street Theatre

Jermyn Street Theatre has announced full casting for the world premiere of Katherine Moar’s debut play, FARM HALL, which runs from 9 March to 8 April 2023.

Directed by Stephen Unwin, the production will star Alan Cox as Werner Heisenberg, David Yelland as Max Von Laue, Archie Backhouse as Erich Bagge, Daniel Boys as Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker, Julius D’Silva as Kurt Diebner, and Forbes Masson as Otto Hahn.

FARM HALL dramatises the thrilling story of Operation Epsilon: one of the more fascinating and unexplored episodes of World War Two.

It is Summer 1945: Hitler is dead, but war in the Pacific rages on. And so the British government has detained six of Germany’s most gifted nuclear scientists at a stately home in Cambridgeshire, named Farm Hall. With only redacted newspapers, a broken piano and a copy of Noël Coward’s Blithe Spirit to amuse them, boredom seems like the biggest threat facing this extraordinary group. But then news arrives from the outside world that changes everything. Every reaction to the unfolding events is captured thanks to the British clandestine surveillance of their “guests”.

The creative team includes: Set and Costume Designer, Ceci Calf; Lighting Designer, Ben Ormerod; and Sound Designer, John Leonard.
